Aspen, Colo. (AP) The Colorado Division of Wildlife says a bear attacked a woman inside her Aspen condo, but her injuries are not life-threatening.

Division of Wildlife Spokesman Randy Hampton says the woman was awakened by a noise in the kitchen area at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. When she went to investigate, the bear struck her in the face, injuring her with its claws.

Hampton says the bear entered through a sliding glass door that was closed but not locked.

The woman was taken to a hospital. Wildlife officials have not released her name or details of her injuries.

Wildlife officers have placed traps for the bear in case it Returns. Hampton says the bear will be killed if captured because of its aggressive behavior.
